Rolf takes us on a hike through the ecology and politics of forest fires.
Clackamas River Northwest Oregon November 12, 2006
Forests provide our community with clean air, pure water, habitat for endangered species, refuge and recreation, but they are not being protected by the current environmental laws. Logging is frequently allowed in sensitive areas, even in watersheds that provide our drinking water, and taxpayers are footing the bill for forest destruction to the tune of millions of dollars every year.Bark is a grassroots organization based in Northwest Oregon that works to preserve the forests, waters and wildlife of Mt. Hood National Forest and surrounding regions.We monitor logging and challenge destructive timber sales in the area and provide education and advocacy programs to bring attention to the vanishing legacy of our forests and wildlands.The BARK email newsletter is sent out approximately twice a month, updating you on Bark events, the state of Mt. Hood National Forest, and a variety of issues affecting our public lands.
